Special Advisor to President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Christopher Mutsvangwa has revealed that he was also part of the team that organised the booing of former First Lady Grace Mugabe at the Bulawayo Youth Interface Rally in November. Soon after Grace was booed, Mnangagwa was dismissed from both Government and Zanu-PF.
This comes after former war veterans minister, retired Colonel Tshinga Dube, confessed that he personally organised members of the Zanu-PF Youth League and war veterans to heckle and boo former First Lady Grace Mugabe, Mutsvangwa revealed he was also involved in an interview with NewsDay while giving details in a plot to topple Robert Mugabe. Said Mutsvangwa:
We did everything in our power to remove Mugabe, but Mnangagwa was never part of it. He was Zanu PF VP and it became apparent to us that it was impossible to force him to dump the party and Mugabe. We could not have spoken on his behalf because we had been expelled, but the booing in Bulawayo was a watershed moment we organised and celebrated. It exposed Mugabe for who he was and opened Mnangagwa’s eyes to what was going on. I must say though that we will always cherish any attempt at unity by the liberation movements or any political parties in our country. Mnangagwa and Dabengwa are patriots we cherish.
